How often should you wash your sheets?

Stripping the bed, washing the sheets, and then wrestling the sheets back on the bed can be a chore. So how often should you wash your sheets? If you sleep in your bed every night, then once a week. If you travel a lot, wake up on the couch with your book over your face, you can probably go every two weeks. If your pets sleep in your bed or if you have allergies, you may want to wash those sheets every 3-4 days. And you may want to wash them more often in the summer months if you get sweaty when you sleep.

Why should you wash your sheets this often? Every few days your sheets accumulate things like dead skin cells, sweat, dirt, body oils and dust mites. So, keep that in mind when you are grumbling as you strip the bed.

And what about your other bedding?

The Sleep Foundation recommends that you wash pillowcases once a week, Duvet covers every two weeks, Comforters every 2-3 months, blankets every 2-3 months and pillows (if washable) every 4-6 months.
